Patrice Lamothe, CEO of Pearltrees October 22, 2010 Everyone realizes that the web is entering a new phase in its development. One indication of this transition is the proliferation of attempts to explain the changes that are occurring.

Functional explanations emphasize the “real time web,” collaborative systems such as Wave, and the growth of localized social networks such as Foursquare. These technical explanations argue that the interconnectivity of data is the most significant current development. Although these explanations are both pertinent and intriguing, none of them offers an analytical framework for assessing the developments that are now underway. In contrast, other explanations are far too broad to serve any useful purpose. How can the web’s development be understood?

Context The development of content creation, sharing and discussion sites has radically transformed the practice of Internet users. However, the democratization of creation has not led to the democratization of access to this content. This imbalance between democratic content creation and centralized access to content poses one of the main barriers to the development of the Web.

The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other. Charges and springs To draw an analogy from classical physics, one may say that websites are electrically charged bodies, while links between them are springs.

Springs pull similar websites together, and the charge does not let the bodies adjoin and pushes websites apart if there is no link between them. Semantic web The Internet Phenomenon. Pearltrees - Visually Organize and Share Collections of Files and Links. Pearltrees is a visual bookmarking tool that I first tried nearly five years ago.

Pearltrees now allows you to organize collections of links, videos, images, and files. All of your collections appear in your Pearltrees homescreen and from there you can access and add to any of your collections. Pearltrees offers a handful of ways to share your collections of resources. Applications for EducationPearltrees recently published a good guide to using their service in schools.

A few weeks ago now, I posted an opinion piece on Technorati titled, 'Why Social Media Curation Matters'.

In addition to this, I was also motivated to re-evaluate my position on the subject of curation and take a closer look at what I perceived that to be.

At first I made the rather naïve assumption that the difference between Pearltrees and the services I’d discussed in my previous articles both here and on my blog, was purely aesthetic – Pearltrees has a beautifully designed Flash interface. However, as I delved further into the service, and further contemplated readers' feedback, I began to realise that there were actually some fundamental differences both in the approach of the developers and in my perception of curation.
